Digital Two Way Radios for the Construction Sector

Digital Two Way Radios for the Construction Sector

Two way radio communications on a busy construction site can be difficult at the best of times. Heavy machinery, high ambient noise, dangerous working conditions, even linking numerous trades and subcontractors and security in user groups can pose you many challenges in your goal for reliable, clear and instant communication. That’s where digital two way radio comes in.

Icom's digital two way radios, called IDAS are incredibly spectrum efficient allowing twice the amount of users on a radio system than comparable technologies. IDAS digital radios feature outstanding audio and superb noise cancelling properties providing clear crisp sound around all parts of a busy building site. Also, because of the way that they digitally transmit, it is possible that parts of a site that previously had a blind spot could be covered.

Another benefit of IDAS digital systems is that it is capable of digital/analogue mixed mode operation. This means that they can receive both analogue and digital modes on a single channel. Mixed mode operation is a real benefit for construction companies as there is not the need to buy a complete radio system outright, an important consideration in the current economic climate. This can help in budgeting the transition from an older analogue system to a digital one.
